This weekend has brought some very sad news.. my good friend lost a very special mare in a freak accident. M was only 6yo, with a very bright future ahead of her. She was one of those genuinely sweet and affectionate horses – I don’t think anyone who met her could have resisted falling in love with her.
M and my dear Fred used to live and travel together to a lot of events and clinics – and he was quite besotted with her! We had some fantastic times competing together, as well as lovely trail rides and gallops at home, and out and about. I hope the two of them have found each other in pony heaven.
It’s a sad reminder that accidents can happen, no matter how careful we are. We should all take the time to appreciate our horses each and every day – you just don’t know when it might be the last chance you’ve got to do so.
